DAMAGES – 201 – I Lied too.

I am thrilled to announce that Rev will be providing us with summaries of each episode of season two of Damages.The previous season of Damages was very near to being a masterpiece work, it span a wonderful tale of mystery, intrigue, deception and murder with a competency that was close to perfection. But it did fall down in a few aspects and as such I’m left hoping that the second season will close up these issues.The first of these is in the characters themselves, Ellen Parsons was a rather weak character and Rose Bryne was left struggling with the weak, hapless, confused kitten role. Compared to the positive mountain lion that we...

The fantastic Rev returns to give us some thoughts on Heroes and House.Heroes:At the end of last season Kring and Co admitted that they’d made mistakes (which was a brave move worthy of respect in itself) and told us that they’d pay more attention this season. We were promised something that would deliver on the potential the first season showed. Did “Villains” give us this?Did it heck, some how Heroes actually managed to take steps backwards and end up producing something which in all honesty is even worse than season two was. The number of crimes they have committed are so vast it’s almost impossible to list...

Having sufficiently recovered from the tour de force that was The Shield series finale, Rev offers up some thoughts on some lighter fare: How I Met Your Mother: So last season ended with Ted and Stella getting engaged. This season has moved forward with the question ‘Is Stella the mother?’ and it’s no spoiler to say that she isn’t (thankfully). HIMYM ran some wonderful fakeouts both in episode and via the internet (in particular leaked pictures of Ted and Stella getting married really sent people looking the wrong way). It’s also given us the brilliant not a father’s day after Barney’s pregnancy...

Thoughts on Television Season Thus Far

(The Office, Boston Legal, Supernatural) In the latest installment of our look at the current television season, Rev talks about The Office, Boston Legal and Supernatural. The Office The Office shook things up at the start of this season by replacing Toby with Holly (played by Amy Ryan, a familiar face for fans of The Wire). It was a pretty brave move that had risks, they were swapping a known quantity with someone who wasn’t really well known for her comedy acting. But it worked and the scenes with Michael and Holly were so wonderful that I was quite, quite sad when she left. The other story lines that have been moving forward this...

The Shield – 711 – Petty Cash

“Petty Cash, the latest episode of The Shield is another episode from the show that has multiple meanings in context. In this case the petty cash refers to the hundred grand that Shane and Mara had stolen from them in last week’s episode (Party Line). It’s not just petty cash in the literal sense but also petty in the method Shane uses it to try and stitch Vic up.Shane is ahead of the game at this point, he’s aware that Corrine is working with Claudette and he attempts to use this to his advantage. At the end of the last episode he demanded a hundred grand from Vic, knowing that the only way Vic could scrape together...
